I fully agree to the assumption because it eliminates answering questions relative to it and can influence traders read between the lines that will move the stock irrationally.just guessing at this stage that idcc mngmt would like to keep the current pricing , etc. So that they can get the utmost value for the company. Still believe that the price will not go down like it used to be a few months ago despite the earnings were not stellar. This time it is all about ip patents value for sale. How much is the value of idcc patents? Nobody knows the exact amount but we can use only as reference the nortel deal. Now, the question to be asked- is nt patents more valuable than idcc's? If you say yes then idcc will not fetch a $4.5b price but if you say no, then premium price can be 2x , 2.5x nt's? Your guess is as good as mine. The only thing i'm quite confident that the price will be fluctuating not too far from it right now but can move up or down depending upon the m&a news. Hang on longs -- the pendulum looks like in our favor.
